re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

If it came down to what *I* wanted, the thread would have been not only left open but stickied; the end of the thread was far more entertaining for me than the beginning. However, it's obviously in the forum's best interests to lock it and move on since it no longer had anything to do with the original subject and I don't want to be held responsible for Needle having an aneurysm if it went on much longer.

What is the official SE flavor of Four Loko, and how long will it be before it's actually off shelves?

SE does not condone underage drinking, USCPF. It would be irresponsible to give youthis information.

When did Needle become the thread czar btw?

Just because he hasn't the lowest threshold of tolerance because of his heightened sense of forum morality doesn't mean that should be SE's threshold.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

why does SE need yet another thread where people snipe each other? If TD and Cardo want to rip each other, take it to the bad poster thread. It seemed clear that they couldn't leave it alone, albeit in a thread that was already ruined.

As noted, there are already an asston of threads which can be dedicated to pointless trolling: this thread; bad p0ster thread, whatever thread they both frequent such as NFC East thread, etc. That was simply another outlet clogging the front page with bile, with no other relevant content in between.

It isn't really as much about McNabb thread as it is an overall halting of fun being had.

Well every thread does turn into a troll of though, so welcome to SE. The Lounge, thataway.

I mean the Karak/G10 thread was awesome and turned into not so mean spirited trolling and there was no reason to lock it up. A lot of great threads come out of some stupid OP and people messing around for 100 posts.

Nowadays we get a lecture about manners and ****, while anything with the possibility of being fun or interesting is locked up by Agent Needle Van Alden and his crusade for moral forum justice.

Strangely when certain people leave certain threads, the trolling drops greatly. Coincidence I'm sure.

don't really understand what you are complaining about. It was trolled for 2 days and something like 7 or 8 pages, resulting in two people turning it into a giant pissing match. Seems like you, and everyone else, had their fun. Locking it was completely fine.
